Keep the Faith

Orphaned by Addicts” [July 4, City Weekly] breaks my heart in so many ways. One thing I don’t understand is how these parents were still allowed to keep their children after so many visits with the police and being in jail. Were there no other options for these children?

While reading this article, I kept thinking how much Maycie Nielsen still continued to forgive her parents and give them chance after chance after chance. It amazes me how truly forgiving children are.

Maycie, continue to have faith and overcome the horrible afflictions that you have endured. You can be a force to be reckoned with. You will be an amazing future mother if you can utilize these afflictions to do good for others.
